David Vitter unloads his Diaper
After quoting comments from President Obama suggesting that he’d like his judicial nominees to be able to empathize with the downtrodden, Vitter declared that demanding empathy in a judge was something you’d expect in a "dictatorship."
Apparently Vitter thought "1984" ended, like much of Vitter’s life, with a "happy ending".
Yes, all of history’s dictatorships and all their George Winston marching songs, the interrogations where they almost burn your skin with lit clove cigarettes, the attempts to "help out" Poland (they never forgot them). Everybody knows Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Saddam, Pinochet, Amin, both Papa AND Baby Doc DuValier — all people persons — all caring nurturers — all touchy-feely — never trod upon anyone.
They were not cold, calculating, uncaring bastards like say Abe Lincoln and Jesus, what with their, "judge not, that we be not judged"?
What kind of a empathetic a-hole would say that?
